Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear about this, is this a new behaviour or something that has been happening for a while? Has anything changed in the home environment?
Ok. I would just let her have her own space if she wants it, she will come to you if she feels comfortable - don't force the issue. Only give her attention if she initiates it, otherwise try to behave as normally around her as possible. If she enjoys playing then maybe try engaging this from a distance. A pheromone based product such as Feliway may be helpful if you feel stress or anxiety is part of the behaviour she is displaying.
See https://icatcare.org/advice/problem-behaviour/anxious-cats for some further tips.
I hope that helps?
